Victoria Miniatures is already working on some conversion parts for the Taurox. What I've seen so far looks pretty good.

Both Kits are great kits, thats my opinion, Metal is entitled to his opinion, but he has a history of negative rants about GW, if memory serves he was rage quitting a few months ago over the writer of the nid codex, and then he was quitting before that because GW didnt put a viable tau stealth army in the codex or some other nonsense, hes just living up to his rantyranter name tag.

The Taurox is different looking, and some people dont like different, but i wouldnt write it off until you have one in the flesh in your hand, it will grow on you. As for the deathstrike/manticore kit its yet another excellent use of the Chimera chassis, the model looks exactly as it should.

my first thought was it looks god-awful,
my second, third and fourth were similar,
painted up differently without the tempestor lion slabs and the turrets it looks infinitely better

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

I find with the turret on top instead of it on the sides for the Autocannon looks a lot better.

And yes, it is actually fairly small, but so are ALL of GW's vehicles.

I personally think GW have done a great job with most of their releases this edition, and I am looking forward with what they come up with for the green skins.

As for the taurox, it does look a little odd in the pictures. The tracks just make it look unbalanced, but isn't this supposed to be a off road tracked vehicle so high clearance is required.Unless I do an elite Guard army I won't be collecting any AM any time soon.

If your opponent fields one and you don't like how it looks, just blow it up, problem solved :-)

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

The only real issue I have with the Taurox is that it IS different looking from most of the rest of the AM aesthetic. Other than that it is a fine looking model and like other "new" additions to the lore, give it a year and most people won't care about the look and will find it a natural fit into the AM.

Seems like a reasonable plan to me

I was browsing another forum and I saw a conversion that someone done to put tires on it and it looked fucking awesome.

Yep. I rant a lot, but I follow through. Since then, I have sold all my Tau bar my stealth suits and some Kroot - writing my own fandex for Stealth Cadre, to playtest/ use with permission at my club. My 5K+ points of Nids went the way of the eBay.

Thing is, I thought I was safe from getting pissed off by GW bullshit now that we halted the ruleset to a mix of 5th and 6th edition locally. With no future editions or codices mattering to us anymore, except from adding new units as they pop up, I thought there was literally no way GW could smack their depression erection around again.

Then they fired all sculpters and gave the job to a damn algorithm. They are trying oh so very hard.

No MH, real people still design these things. Even if YOU don't like them doesn't make the product bad it just makes it not to your personal tastes and preferences.

For every person online complaining about how a model looks there at at least 5 people who like the same model.
